Appleton West band director retiring after 23 yrs
0 0

The longtime leader of the band at Appleton West high school will conduct his final concerts tonight and tomorrow.

Michael Ross is retiring at the end of the school year, after 23 years as the band director.

Ross says it's bittersweet. He says he'll have more time to do things that he's wanted to do. But he says the students have made a lot of progress on the show over the last month, and he's going to miss those types of things. 

Ross says while he plans to continue to conduct in the future, it won't be in the same setting.

The concerts are in the high school auditorium, tonight and tomorrow, starting at 7:30 p.m.
